At today’s Television Critics Association (TCA) 2014 Winter Press Tour Lifetime and series creator Marc Cherry announced plans for the second season of the wildly popular nighttime soap opera, Devious Maids!
Those plans include that executive producer Eva Longoria will direct the season two opener, and that at some point in the future, she will make an appearance on the series! Devious Maids will return on April 20th in the 10PMEST/PST time slot on Lifetime!
As far as what to expect Cherry revealed, expect to “see some new faces and say goodbye to some other faces” in the new season. The cast which is comprised of Susan Lucci, Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Judy Reyes and more apparently admitted that they were told by real-life maids that Devious Maids doesn’t quite do justice to the actual stories from homes. “Whatever we can think of, the truth is stranger than fiction, and it gave us a lot of confidence going forward,” Cherry commented.
According to the press release for season two here is what to look for: “Following last season’s revelation of Flora’s murderer, Rosie’s shocking arrest by immigration agents, the demise of Valentina and Zoila’s relationship and Carmen’s fake engagement, season two promises to deliver even more excitement. Beverly Hills is hit by a wave of criminal activity that leaves its residents in a vulnerable situation. Meanwhile, Marisol engages in a new romance but quickly discovers there is more than meets the eye to her new lover. Zoila’s need to control everything starts to take a toll on her personal life, especially with Valentina, who is now working for a surprising new employer. Rosie’s immigration status is in flux, while Carmen embraces her life in the limelight as the fiancée to a pop star.”
